There are so many things that I don't like about these Marc sandals: the thin, horizontal vamp seems impractical, the buckles look like they came from a very average Coach bag, and of course the ankle cuff. Between the thin vamp and chunky ankle cuff, the shoe looks extremely unbalanced. These babies are yours for just 400!
I can tolerate the Tory Burch Stud T-strap flats. Although the shape of the sandal still seems a bit silly, the zipper in the back is fitting for an ankle cuff. As a whole, the design of this shoe flows. And they're 100 cheaper than the Marc pair!
